The keynote speaker is Mr. Davis’ sister, Kimberly Davis. Ms. Davis will share her story, and a panel discussion will follow featuring: Ken Rose, senior staff attorney at the Center for Death Penalty Litigation in Durham, N.C.; Denny LeBoeuf, director of the American Civil Liberties Union’s Capital Punishment Project in Durham, N.C.; Kathleen Mullin, executive director of the Fair Trial Initiative in Durham, N.C.; and Darryl Hunt, a North Carolina activist who spent 18+ years in prison for a murder he did not commit. The panel discussion will be moderated by Ebony Brickhouse of Amnesty International.

The event will begin with a reception at 5:30 p.m. where hors d’oeuvres will be served. Ms. Davis’ presentation and the panel discussion will begin at 6:30 p.m. and last until 7:30 – 8 p.m.
